Tucked away in a basement (you can easily walk by the place!), this is a cosy pub with a nice but not too rare selection of Belgian beers.

Located in a cellar of a building right next to a church, easily missed, this place is spacious, quite dingy but cozy. The staff are very friendly and relaxed, and they know their trade well. The selection may be smaller than in other rated places in town but it features good stuff, especially in bottles. Nice Lambics and Sour Red/Browns. Not very expensive. Might be back again.

Located in a cellar, with dim lights and big, wooden tables, has a somehow ancient look. The range of beer is huge, there are also 4-5 beers on tap. What impressed me most, every beer got its own glass, which is totally unusal for german beer, but standard in Belgium. Perfect atmosphere to have a vew drinks after a busy day in town. Pub growths full in the later hours of the evening, which never occured as a problem, because the place is huge.

Nice atmosphere down in a cellar. Not a bad selection, but not good either. Worth a visit for the nice atmosphere, the decently priced beers, the good service and the general cozy ambiance of the place.

Once you find it (because itís quite difficult to spot the place) you can be sure to taste interesting beers. My overall impression was not great but if you donít have high expectations itís just fine.

HUGE assortment of beers. This bar really does a great job of showing just how rich the Belgian beer culture is. As a Brugian local now for 9 years, I still have not tried all the beers they have available. Can be quite busy though on friday/saturday nights from 9-12

Wow, this is an original place. The entrance door (if we can call it an entrance door) is not easy to spot because the bar is actually a basement, almost underground. The interior is surreal. I have never been in beer with a cavernous setting like this one. Warm, inviting, yet dark and almost creepy, full of memorabilia, a gramophone here, scary puppets there, old bottles everywhere, bunch of old stuff. Furniture is from another era completely. A baby foot table. Surprisingly for a Bruges bar, this one seems to be attracting mostly locals. Not a touristy place it appears. Beer list is nothing to brag about. Limited tap-list (4 of them) with only Taras Boulba that was interesting. Typical Belgian Flemish bottle list. Plenty of quality beers but nothing for the beer hunter. However this is not the place to discover a beer and certainly not to rate one. Here you want to discover the place, not the beer, so you sit down with a personal favorite (in my case Orval in proper glassware) and just look around in amazement. A unique place. I highly recommend going there early to be in an empty bar and really get the full effect of this unique place.

Nice cellar location, although I always bang my head when leaving. Decent selection and prices on the lower side for central Bruges. Might be a bit dingy for some, but I like it.
